James T. Burrell, better known as JT, passed away on April 13th, 2022, after a strong battle with congestive heart failure.
JT was born on October 10th, 1980, to Douglas W. Burrell Sr. and Sharon Denise Burrell in Bellflower, CA. After graduating from high school in Moreno Valley, CA, JT relocated to Phoenix, AZ to be near his mother and Family.
JT loved being loved and couldn’t stand being alone. Family was everything to him and if he called you friend, then you were family. And very much like our father, if you messed with his family, the bull would come out. Yes, we all know JT was a fighter, right up until his last day on this earth he fought. Growing up JT loved dancing, basketball and following his sister to all the parties. Which is how he became everybody’s little brother.
JT is survived by his children, Ajanee Burrell, Shyanne Burrell, James Burrell II, Ayden Burrell, Ava Burrell, and Talon; his brother, Douglas W. Burrell Jr.; his sister, Antoinette Burrell-Williams; his brother-in-law, Seth Williams Jr; his sister-in-law, Monina Burrell; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents and his daughter, Lady.
The family would like to thank all of those who showed JT love in his final days. Your calls, visits and prayers gave our brother the opportunity to see and hear how much he was loved, that we all were there for him; he was not alone, and he will be missed.
But your 1st best friends, your big brother and sister, Doug and Toni; and your baby cousins, James and Terhia, will miss you most.
